Closing Prayer from the Navajo Way Blessing Ceremony

In beauty I walk
With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me I walk
With beauty around me I walk
It has become beauty again

Today I will walk out, today everything negative will leave me
I will be as I was before, I will have a cool breeze over my body.
I will have a light body, I will be happy forever, nothing will hinder me.
I walk with beauty before me. I walk with beauty behind me.
I walk with beauty below me. I walk with beauty above me.
I walk with beauty around me. My words will be beautiful.

In beauty all day long may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.

With dew about my feet, may I walk.
With beauty before me may I walk.
With beauty behind me may I walk.
With beauty below me may I walk.
With beauty above me may I walk.
With beauty all around me may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.

My words will be beautiful…

The Great Tree

 

The trunk of the great tree is connected

To its branches that are connected to its leaves

The trunk connects to the roots

Who are embedded in the earth

that drinks the rain that has fallen from the clouds

Who are highlighted by the sun

that warmed the wind

That rustles through the leaves

attached to the branches

which hold the nest that houses the bird

who flies down in the warm wind

To land on the rain soaked earth

To pluck from it a worm that has

Been living in its home in the roots

Of the great tree

 

The tree is connected to everything around it

Like we are connected to everything around us

We are shifting

Connecting

Moving toward a transformation

Of self

That will lead to a transformation

Of all

We are open to all there is

Reaching out with all we are

Like the branches of the great tree

And as our connection grows

Each branch grows

Nurturing new branches from each bow

The tree that is Life

Expands and Evolves

In never ending possibility

Our connection spreads

Our branches flourish

And the branch that is me

Touches the branch that is you

Your branch touches another

And another until our tree is

Thick and full

Warmed by the light of a world of hearts

Nourished by the falling of a world of tears

Rooted by the trunk of a world as one

And like the Great Tree is Connected

Within itself

But also connected to the earth and sky

As we are connected to Our Inner Self

But also to others and Life

To Know Enlightenment

“Enlightenment does not mean that you will have 24/7 bliss and peace with a perfected personality. Enlightenment means “to know” or “to be aware of.” It does not necessarily mean to be the master of anything, even life. Simply knowing who and what you are, is all that is necessary to be enlightened. A perfected personality is impossible, and therefore is not a prerequisite to enlightenment. The human condition itself can never be enlightened. Only the true self, which does not have a human personality, is enlightened. This is the one who knows that sub-personalities are creations of the human condition, with its traumas and successes in human life.

…you are not your personality. You are also not the body, the mind or the emotions – none of these. You are eternal consciousness that lives long after the personality, the mind, and the body have come and gone. Eternal consciousness is your true identity, not your personality. Up to this point you might have thought that you are your personality, your name, your collection of experiences; but you are not. In fact, you are not the one who is evolving. The human is what is evolving, which includes the body, the mind, the emotions, and the personality.”
